Cosmological Condensed Matter Physics: Evan McDonough
Particle physics and condensed matter physics find a natural meeting point in dense astrophysical systems, such as neutron stars.
If dark matter is a particle with a very small mass, condensed matter physics can be relevant on cosmological scales, leading to phenomena such as exotic phases of matter (superfluid, superconducting) and vortex formation within galaxies.
Models of this type can be tested in a wide array of experimental arenas, ranging from the large-scale structure of the universe to particle physics experiments.
A meet and greet, with pizza, will take place at noon. The presentation will begin at 3:40 p.m .
